The Beast. The Thing. October 14, 2011 Posted by Mookie
For those of you keeping track (of which I doubt there are many of you actually counting), this is the 2600th Dominic Deegan comic. It's not much of a milestone, but I think it's a number you can really sink your teeth in to. Tee hee.

Speaking of shapeless and horrid monsters with rows of death-teeth, I've been cautiously excited about THE THING, which opens today and is a prequel to the classic 80s monster movie of the same name. I am a huge fan of the John Carpenter film. With fantastic suspense, nail-biting tension and special effects that are an exhibition of grotesque monster makeup, it's one of my all-time favorite films. So I've been keeping an eye on this movie and hoping beyond hope that they'll "get it right." I'll likely see it over the weekend, so cross your fingers. And if this news post does nothing else than inspire you to go check out John Carpenter's classic film instead, then I've done my job.

That's all from me for now.
Rock on and have a nice weekend!
